Proper Opossum Poetry Corner

Filed under: FunnyCrazzzzyopossum

The internet is a crazy place for crazy people to watch other crazy people's videos.

This video is no exception.

A woman reads opossum themed poetry to her opossum while occasionally slamming bongos.

We have no idea what's going on but the opossum is cute so we recommend just strapping in and staring at the opossum.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Blows Our Minds At Serge Gainsbourg Tribute

Joseph Gordon-Levitt FTW!!!

He made a special appearance at the tribute to French musician Serge Gainsbourg at the Hollywood Bowl Sunday night and closed the show with quite the poetic finale. We were screaming right along with those girls when he started speaking French.

It's really quite impressive.

P.S. Thanks for being hawt. And talented. And awesome.

Jon Stewart Vs. Bill O'Reilly: Common Edition

Last week, we were very pleased with Jon Stewart when he slammed Fox News for their arguments as to why Common shouldn't have been invited to the White House for Michelle Obama's poetry event.

Now, Stewart has taken on Fox News again in a debate with Bill O'Reilly (above), and of course he totally obliterates O'Reilly's argument!

Way to go, Jon! As is often the case, we are proud!

Who do U side with? Team Stewart or Team O'Reilly?

Jon Stewart Responds To Fox News Outrage Over Common

Once again, Fox News has created a stir out of nothing and once again Jon Stewart has destroyed their argument by using their own words against them.

Fox News personalities like Sean Hannity have been poorly quoting select verses written by Common in outrage over his invitation to perform poetry at the White House's celebration of poetry on Wednesday night.

Watch the clips above to see how a comedy show is more truthful than a "news" network.

Regardless of whether you think Common was a suitable choice to perform at Michelle Obama's poetry event, you have to admit that Fox News is basically just making stuff up at this point.

They refer to all of these individual verses in Common's poem, but fail to understand (or maybe purposely ignore) the bigger picture of what the poem was trying to say by using the language in question.

We'd like to thank the Daily Show for taking the time to point out with strong, visual, undeniable evidence of Fox News' shameful attempts to discredit the Obama administration any chance they get, as well as talented artists like Common who get caught in the political crossfire.

Fox News And Sarah Palin Outraged By Common's White House Invite

Sean Hannity is up in arms over Michelle Obama inviting rapper Common to come to the White House for an evening celebrating poetry on Wednesday.

On Tuesday during his show, the Fox News personality criticized the First Lady's decision because he believes that the White House is setting a bad example by allowing a "controversial" rapper to…come inside? Ha!

He's not alone either!

On Tuesday, Sarah Palin tweeted:

"Oh lovely, White House…"

So WHAT'S the big deal?

Common spit out an anti-Bush verse while performing a poem at a 2007 Def Poetry event.

Oh, the horror! What poet DIDN'T spit out an anti-Bush verse in 2007? LOLz!

We believe it's called, wait, what's that expression? It's on the tip of our tongue. It's so close! It's — oh yeah — FREEDOM OF SPEECH!

If you'd like to see Hannity ATTEMPT to read the poem in question, then proceed to yell over the commentator ATTEMPTING to offer a different point of view (and educated), check out the video above.

Are U upset that Common is appearing at the White House poetry event or is Fox News and their conservative cohorts blowing this WAY out of proportion?

Oops! Are Those Kate Middleton's Wedding Vows???

Filed under: Royals RoyceOops!Love LineKate MiddletonPhotos!

kate middleton royal wedding vows may have been revealed

What have you got there, Kate? Could that be part of your wedding vows???

Check out the photo (above) of a piece of paper from the back of Kate Middleton's car, which has got some poetic writing on it.

While it's not 100% clear, one of the lines on the piece of paper seems to read as follows:

"With so much love within our hearts."

Def sounds to us like this could be an indicator that William and Kate wrote their vows themselves.

Guess we'll find out soon!

Do U think we're getting a glimpse at marriage vows? Or is it something else?

P.S. Be sure to watch Perez as he hosts with Nene Leakes "Will + Kate Forever," the only royal wedding special worth seeing, airing Friday, April 29th at 7pm/6c on Wedding Central and also at 9pm/8c on WE tv.
